Viking Heat by Sandra Hill
Back of Book Description:
Psychologist Joy Nelson thinks things are bd when she finds herself in training in the modern-day female Navy SEALs program. But then her life takes a turn for the worse. Somehow she's been thrust back in time to the cold Norselands, and is being auctioned off as a thrall, or slave--a gift for a Viking warlord, who would be a perfect candidate for Male Chauvinist Viking of the Centuries!
Brandr isn't thrilled with the slave his brothers have purchased for him. Holy Thor! The woman want to teach him anger-management skills! And help him find his feminine side, whatever that is. She may be beautiful, but the saucy wench defies him at ever turn. So Brandr makes her an offer: She can earn her freedom...as his bed thrall. But when Joy dares to decline his offer, he must decide what to do with the woman enslaved to him--and the out-of-control heat between them...
My Rating: A
This book grabbed me from the beginning. I loved the humor (as I have with all of Hill's books) and the deep emotion in it. Sandra Hill has no fear when it comes to putting real life problems that the Vikings would have come up with, but she doesn't describe them in such a brutal way that it is upsetting or a turn off. There were about three chapters in the beginning that were a little slow, but not unnecessary or a turn off. I was happy when we got to the 'exciting' part and had much trouble putting it down. Actually, it was no trouble, I never put it down. Read it in one day.
I highly recommend this and every one of her romances.
